Day 1

Overview

Luang Prabang > Ban Somsanouk > Pak Ou Cave > Ban Xang Hai (Pak Xeung)

We start off in Luang Prabang heading North on 13rd Road to a Khmu village of Ban Somsanouk where a short introduction to paddling and the basics of kayaking will be given. We then head off downstream where there are some easy rapids!

Along the way on the Nam Ou River, we see the beautiful cliffs and authentic villages. We carry on downstream once again until stopping for a delicious picnic lunch which is prepared for us in the most scenic of locations, a beautiful white sandbank set amongst some amazing surroundings!

After lunch and taking a relaxing break and swim we carry onwards once again. The afternoon is spent paddling in a calmer section of the Nam Ou and on the Mekong River (according to your option).

Along the way, there is plenty of time to watch the villagers fishing and harvesting river weed which they dry out, season and fry to make a tasty snack! We stop at the famous Pak Ou (Buddha) Cave to observe these thousands Buddha’s and a cultural and historical beautiful cave!

The end of the kayaking is in weaving and Lao whisky making village. From here we go back to Luang Prabang by Private Local truck or “Songtheow”.
